3:15 am
martha vineyard he took a detour down in orlando to give a speech in front of the disabled veterans group. friday was a busy day at the white house, he signed the student loan bill, which was not as good as elizabeth warren would have liked. it's down to 3.9%. we hoped it would be 3.4%, but it's better than the range of 6th 9% of student loans. he held a news conference before he went on vacation, and it was interesting for several reasons. first of all, in the buzz, in the briefing room ahead of time, rather, while we were waiting the buzz was the president was going to make an opening statement. he was going to make an opening statement about the nsa and
3:16 am
major changes in the program of collecting met d meta-data becaf all the criticism he has got. people are anticipating and buzzing about that. we got into the east room, 20 minutes ahead of time. everybody gets their seats, and then they give the two-minute warning. the president comes in, and he covered a whole range of topics. this was really a media news conference. i'm sure you read and heard a lot about it. he talked about immigration reform. he talked about whether or not there would be a government shutdown. he talked about larry summers and janet yellen as new chairman of the fed. and he talked about putin. he said that putin sits in a slouch like's a high school likl
3:17 am
student sitting in the back chair of the room like he's a high school student. he talked about the olympics, there was no way we were going to boycott the olympics but we were going to defend lgbt and coming home with a medal is the best way to combat bias in russia. then he spent the rest of the time talking about nsa, the spy program, and that's when he started. he said, first of all look, people are right to be asking questions about what is going on. >> obama: given the history of abuse by government it's right to ask questions about surveillance particularly as technology is reshaping every aspect of our lives. >> bill: he said what is important is that americans have to trust the intelligence
3:18 am
services. >> obama: it's not enough for me as president to have confidence in these programs. the american people need to have confidence as well. >> bill: he said he was going to make a few little changes. one is for now on we're going to find out more about what is going on, and what the legal basis for it is. >> obama: so in under my direction the nsa is taking steps to put in place a full-time civil liberties and privacy officer and release information and details of it's oversight. >> bill: he said we need for transparency and a little more oversight. he said, and this is the key phrase, work with conference to make changes. >> obama: we can put in steps
3:19 am
for greater oversight, transparency and greater restraints on use of this authority. i look forward to working with congress to meet these objectives. >> bill: all in all i would like to know what you thought about the president's conference, particularly on this nsa meta-data collection, but i got to tell you i came away disappointed. disappointed because notice if you really live listened to whae president was saying, and early editorials over the weekend pointed this out. the president was not talking about--he was not defending the program. he wasn't talking about how to fix it. he was talking about how to sprain it better. we need to do things to people have confidence in the system. three things that i felt were troubling. number one, he said he had total confidence in what nsa was doing, the need for it, and he's
3:20 am
absolutely convinced that there is no abuse of this system. that they're collecting all this--all these records on every phone call, and nobody is listening in on any single one phone call. i just find that hard to believe, that if these agents are collecting all this data, and the name pops up like you name it, stephen strasbourg or paris hilton or dianne feinstein and someone thinks, i wonder what she's saying, i wonder what they're talking about. he said there is total confidence and no abuse whatsoever. that's the first thing i found hard to swallow. then he said i'm going to work with congress to do this. i'm going to work with congress for greater transparency. i'm going to work with congress to figure out how to better explain it. work with congress?
3:21 am
that was almost laugh-out-loud funny. he's working with congress on immigration reform. how is that going? he's working with congress on gun safety. how is that going? he's working with congress about obama care, how did that go. this congress is impossible to work with. the idea of bases your hopes on more transparency with this congress ain't going to happen. and then the president said, and i really found this a reach--all this talk about national security and privacy, all this conversation we're happening right now, it would have happened without edward snowden. no way. no freakin' way. we're talking about this because edward snowden released those documents about nsa. i'm glad we're having this
3:22 am
conversation, but it's more about how do we explain it better? it's got to go how do we rein in nsa and stop them unless there is a reason to suspect somebody, then you can go full board. tell me what you think. did he go far enough? we'll be right back. >> this is the pill press show. headlines. real, gripping, current. documentaries... on current tv. for true stories. with award winning documentaries that take you inside the headlines. real, gripping, current. documentaries... on current tv. ç]

this show is about analyzing, criticizing, and holding policy to the fire. are you encouraged by what you heard the president say the other night? is this personal, or is it political? a lot of my work happens by doing the things that i'm given to doing anyway, by staying in touch with everything that is going on politically and putting my own nuance on it. in reality it's not like they actually care. this is purely about political grandstanding. i've worn lots of hats, but i've always kept this going. i've been doing politics now for a dozen years.

3:28 am
president is going to have it, it's not going away. >> bill: that's the problem, ted. you see, if president obama doesn't fix it, i don't trust the next president to fix it. president obama has got an opportunity right here, right now. i think you have to count on him to do that because he's different. he is a progressive president. i expect him not to be like george bush and dick cheney and just defend the intelligence agencies. >> caller: he's trying to make an effort, and he's trying to knock 'em down. >> bill: he is not making an effort. that's my point. he didn't do anything at all. he didn't offer anything at all on friday to change it. he said he had questions as a senator, but now he doesn't have any other questions. and if only we understood it the way he understands it then we would be perfectly happy with the nsa collecting data, ted, on every phone call that you make.

i was looking for changes in the nsa spying program. we didn't get any. the president said we're going to try to explain it better. is that good enough? 1-866-55-press for your comments. here is another story about identity theft that caught my attention. this one up in connecticut. i tell you it's everywhere, folks. an ad pretending to be hiring for a national company, took all of their information, and of course he used that to open up credit cards and bank accounts in their name. another case of identity theft you are susceptible to it unless you're protected against it as i am with life lock ultimate. the most comprehensive i.d. theft protection available tod

3:36 am
information on every single phone call made in the united states by every single american who places the call, how long the call is and who they're calling, hard to see how that helps us find a terrorist in the middle east. remember last week this whole new terror scare that we found out about, took action, closed those embassies, nothing to do with this domestic spying program. that domestic spying program did not help one damn bit. i join republicans and democrats in congress. you've got people in congress like john conyers on the left, and james sensenbrenner on the right. you have dick durbin on the left and rand paul on the right all saying there have to be limits to this data collection, and there should be probable cause or some sufficient reason for going after those phone data on
3:37 am
a particular person before you randomly collect the data on every single phone call in the united states. president obama is not there. he defended the program and said basically if we just explain it better you'll accept it. hmm? how about you, not me. >> we tweet at bp show, and the president said he wants to work with congress to open up transparency. >> bill: that's a joke. >> and it's been said work with what congress. and another said it's our responsibility as citizens to create a congress that the president can work with. >> bill: that's true, and to start throw john boehner out i in 2013. >> and another said i'm sick of
3:38 am
you for not supporting the president. does he get anything right? sick of your talk. >> bill: i am not a rubber stamp. i cannot do that. i cannot be that. he's my president, and i support him. but when i think he's wrong i will say you. sorry to disappoint you. i am not an obama rubber stamp or echo. hector is calling from wood bridge, virginia, hector, thank you for your patience and your call, what do you think? >> caller: how can you be elected president and go against your oath of upholding the constitution? this is a violation of the fourth amendment. it doesn't matter how they explain it. we know what it is. the problem is he's not understanding that it's a violation of our privacy. i think really we need to
3:39 am
explain to our government what is wrong, not them explaining it to us. >> bill: that's a good way of putting it. i think it is an unconstitutional program. by the way, i think it was mark youdall, the one from colorado,i believe mark udall. he said the same thing last week. he said if it's not it's very close to violation of the fourth amendment. and the president of all people, a constitutional lawyer, should understand that. i think what happens, hector, in the white house of any president, they get in there and they're surrounded by national security guys, and they give in to them. i expected it from george bush and dick cheney. i'm not--not from president obama. i thought he would be more likely who would say hey, wait a minute. come on, i don't buy that crap. steve in manassas, virginia,
3:40 am
what are you saying? >> caller: good morning, bill. i agree with the president that some transparency is necessary. but i want to add a specific issue that was made public in 2008 in a book called "the shadow factory" by james banford. >> bill: who knows as much about this as anybody else. >> caller: yes, he has been tracing it since the 1980s. the nsa does collect all this information, and then runs it through the super computers that look for key terminology. it's when they run across this key terminology that they then dump the information to a human resource that then reviews it and determines whether or not it warrants further investigation. >> bill: the point, they're collecting so much information.
3:41 am
the new center they're building wherever it is in utah. first of all, it requires a massive army to sort through all this stuff, and they have so much stuff they may never be able to find the needle because they got too much hay if you follow the needle in the haystack analysis. >> caller: well, i agree if it that were the case. but because of the fact that there is such a large amount of information that needs to be screened, it's the super computers that are programmed with these key bits of key terms that are looked for. once they come across these key terms, then they're dumped to human beings for review. >> bill: steve, i appreciate your call, and i'll trust anything that james banford says on this stuff. i've interviewed him before. but the point is we would not accept local police officers
3:42 am
going door to door and just entering houses without a search warrant, without sufficient cause to get a search warrant, and searching those homes. we would never accept that. yet we are accepting the fact that nsa is collecting data on every phone call in the united states without any reason at all. to even remotes possibility of being connected to any terrorist organization or activity that they just collect everything possible. don't tell me they get the permits from the fisa court because the fisa court is a rubber stamp. like dick durbin said, there should be probable cause and then you can get anything you want. but you have to show probable cause first.
3:43 am
the nsa doesn't have to. chet? >> caller: first of all, president obama is once again stone walling about an issue that should have been brought to the american people way, way, way long before edward snowden brought it about. the real issue with that is something that rand paul brought up is the drones. the drone program, where does it stop? where does it stop? that is the scary question. it really is. >> bill: well, it is, chet, and i talked a lot about the drones. the drones did come up in the news conference on friday, and it's been reported that we've stepped up--i'm not saying
3:44 am
this is a wrong thing to do with the terrorist threat last week and the embassies closing. we've stepped up drone attacks and killed several al-qaeda, maybe not top level but second level, and the president was asked about that friday at the news conference. he said, i'm not going to talk about that. again, the secret thing, why can't the president tell us exactly what we're doing and why? i'm telling you, i didn't get the answers i was looking for on friday. to be continued, josh next from the hotline. >> this is the the bill press show.

3:49 am
and i thought interesting to, too, given a chance to defend larry summers, he defended larry summers as a serious candidate as chairman of the fed. does this mean that he has the inside track? >> caller: i think it tells you a lot about president obama's management style. he's someone who values the advice and he has has trust of people who were loyal to him, as he said in the press conference, did a solid job in serving him in the administration. larry summers was a big part of the economic team in the wake of the recession and the measures that the administration took. he valued his expertise and his service at the beginning part of his administration, and i think that's playing a big role that level of personal relationship is playing a big role in who he'll pick.
3:50 am
>> bill: i find it stunning. i had dinner with friends who are big wall street types, if you will. they were unanimous in that larry summers would be a disaster, and that the front page article in the sunday "new york times," how can you read that article and say, boy, he will not even be on the list. he seems toxic, larry summers. >> summers has a lot of critics, and he doesn't necessarily have the best bedside manner of someone who is not a politician, and definitely alienated a whole bunch of folks in both the clinton and obama administration, and also when he was at harvard. >> bill: yes, yes, the faculty at harvard gave a no-confidence vote. >> pretty damaging when you're
3:51 am
not even supported by the professor of your own university. it ultimately only matters what president obama thinks. and you're right he seems to be inclined to take him but we won't find out until september. >> bill: so this is only august 2013, and believe it or not we're already talking abou about 2016. joe biden the reason, one of the reasons is joe biden announced his office that he was going to be the star at tom hopkins steak friday on september 13 a month from now. what does this mean for joe biden? >> it means at the very least he wants to be considered, he wants to be in the conversation of possible candidates running for president in 2016. if you talk to folks, one of the things that irritates people the most is when people automatically assume he's not a serious candidate, he doesn't have what it takes to be president. at the very least, i think his visits to iowa, and his trips to
3:52 am
the steak fry is as much of an attempt that people view him on the a-list of candidates along with hillary clinton. the fact that we're talking about it, you don't want to be seen-- >> bill: indeed. a good move for joe biden, josh kraushaar, and i know, josh, you're working on more news again including "the new york times" story about the virginia governor's race, and new questions about terry mcauliffe. >> yes, a bad, bad weekend for the nominee. the story in the "new york times," "washington post" and associated press all cast a negative light of m mcauliffe's
3:53 am
work and it paints a picture of mcauliffe using political connection rather than using a business model and trying to do things in a traditional fashion. and through a whole lot of unfavorable news stories, hillary clinton brother was in the company but nobody knew what he did. >> bill: my question is terry mcauliffe has lots of political connections because he has done so much work, raised so much money for so many candidates, why shouldn't he use political connections. >> well, the problem is the business is not doing well. it's going bankrupt, and it's the mitt romney problem. he said he created jobs but it's hard to find a business that he
3:54 am
was ceo of that has been successful. that's why green tech was so important to mcauliffe's political career because he could run for governor and use this company as his job creation skill, but it hasn't really worked out that way. >> bill: thank you, we'll look for more on that story. josh, thanks for being with us. we've been talking with josh kraushaar who is the new editor in chief at the hotline. >> this is the bill press show.

did golf start hybrid? >> ten, 15 years ago? >> bill: no, this is not a combination of gas and electricity. hole in one is pretty impressi impressive. i've friend in california who was playing golf with president clinton and got a hole in one. if you get a hole in one while playing with the president of the united states, that's impressive. >> isn't eagle a move? two under par. how many holes in one does the president get that he doesn't actually get. >> bill: as many as he wants. >> the president always wins. >> bill: it's a big time, buzzy time in the politics, and particularly up in new york city. he refuses to drop out of the race, and-- >> i like we're saying drop out rather than pull out of the race. >> bill: i purposely said it that way. anthony weiner is in there to

4:17 am
whole lot of money to spend in new york. there are matching funds. where bloomberg would spend $60 million of their own money, we're talking about $5 million a piece here. i think christine quinn will thankfully come in first with 25% to 35% of the vote and then have a run-off two weeks later with one of the other two guys. >> di blastio or thompso thompson{^l" ^}. >> i don't think weiner has what it takes to pull this oh off. >> he has struggled being an one-man band. >> he's always been an one-man band. he was a grade one jerk. he has no friends in washington.

4:19 am
>> oh, yes, sioux falls, i've been all over the state. >> bill: why? >> working in politics. i worked with howard dean back in my old days as a republican i worked with alexander and john mccain many moons ago. i think biden plays well there, i think hillary plays well there. many of these desands, whether it's martin o'malley or cuomo in new york, all of these people have to do these types of things to keep themselves potentially viable whether or not or not they end up running. if hillary runs, many of these people won't bother but they'll continue to do these types of events just in case she doesn't run. >> bill: just to keep-- >> yes, it's good food and whatnot and showing support senator harkin but all the political activists from all

4:21 am
blah-blah-blah. there are many senators and governors in this country that are qualified. >> bill: who are the other women on the list? kirsten gillibrand. >> any number of senators. we've got a great caucus of women amy klovichar is impressive. and there is a dirth of qualified women, and i think part of the goal is to let the media know that if hillary clinton doesn't run, there are many who could. >> bill: karl frisch on the full court press. give us a call at 1-866-55-press. your comments, your questions. give us a holler. we'll be right back. >> follow us on twitter @bp show. this is the bill press show.

4:36 am
republicans have come up with an agricultural bill where we'll give the farmers some subsidy, and we'll give the poor people some food stamps. this year the republicans said, no, we'll take care of the farmers but screw the poor. >> for the first time in the post-war era separated the farm bill into two parts, and they passed the farmer part in the house of representatives, and we're waiting on the food stamp part. they've got a plan that supposedly they'll vote on. you can't be sure that this will actually happen because there is so much turmoil but they'll cut food stamps by 50%, reduce the rolls by 2 million people. >> bill: all right, my understanding is that the farm bill that came out of the senate that was in front of the house cut food stamps by $20 billion, right? >> the farm bill that the senate passed had a smaller cut by a percent.
4:37 am
which i think democrats are willing to do to get in front-- >> to get the legislation passed. >> right, and to get--you can say that you made this modest cut that bolsters public support. i think that's their thinking there. the republican cut is 40 times bigger than that. >> bill: right. >> and would clearly result in several million people losing benefits. >> bill: here is the problem with food stamps. >> it's not just losing benefits. when we talk about what the--yes, in fact, they would lose benefits but what are they losing? they're losing food. okay? they are one of the things that we require to survive. i just wanted to put that out there. >> bill: our leader nancy pelosi said this is literally taking food out of the mouths of children. i mean, you know this program better than anybody, who benefits from food stamps? who is getting food stamps today? >> well, take it from the congressional budget office the
4:38 am
majority, vast majority like 90% is either children, old people or disabled people. and so-- >> they are the people we really got to crackdown on. >> well, this is what the debate is about. instead of debating in a policy-driven way, it's about who is the face of food stamps? and there is a raging battle over this. >> everybody at this point. i've seen numbers up there that what i consider startling percentage of people at some point in their life will have to rely on these types of benefits. >> absolutely. a genuine cross section of demographics, but you have to be poor to get them. but republicans want to put forward a different portrait of the food stamp benefits. >> bill: getting to my point, as a republican freshman from oklahoma i never heard of him
4:39 am
before, mark wayne mullen. that's his name. mark wayne is all one word. mark wayne mullen. he said in a town hall in oklahoma during this break, and he says this food stamp program is a lot of phoneys, full of fraud. here he is telling the story. >> then i'm looking over, and this guy was built like a brick house. i mean, he had muscles all over. he was in a little tank top, shorts, and really nice nike shoes, and she was standing there, and she was all in shape, and they looked like they just came from a fitness program. and you know, they were both physically fit. they go up in front of me, and they paid with that card.
4:40 am
fraud. fraud. >> bill: fraud. the first to admit that spandex is a bit much. that should an test. >> bill: so what he's saying is you can't be healthy and be on food stamps, right? >> which is precisely is why they want to cut them. they want to cut them who needs it unhealthy because they're not nourished. then they'll get it back when they look gangly and sickly enough. >> this is the type of anecdote that forms this debate at all times. stories at town halls, louie gohmert talking about people buying crab legs in june. if you search food stamps and crab legs, it goes back 20 years constantly. cash register resentment. >> ronald reagan welfare queen. >> exactly. it's a debate in this country who is the deserving poor. but there is this caricature for
4:41 am
one reason or another the person at the cash register in front of them is totally unworthy, and it's usually just one detail about them, not the full portrait at all. but why someone who is physically fit is undeserving? this is new, sort of a twist. he's not used to telling these stories as a congressman. he's freshman. >> he had a lot more descriptions for the guy, all the muscles, sinewing and tank top, but he had a wife, too, but back to the muscles. >> well usually the people in these stories are like overweight and with 20 kids in tow. so he's sort of flip the script. i asked his office what is fraud lent about that, him being muscular and using food stamps, and they didn't respond. but he's insinuating that this
4:42 am
guy had a gym membership. couldn't he get rid of the gym membership before he bought food. >> bill: how many people are on food stamps. >> 15% of this country. >> bill: are they all muscular? >> that's the requirement. you have to be poor. you have to have proofe proved y enrolling in some other set of program. you literally do have to--if you own a car, you can't get on food stamps. >> but if your name is markwayne and your parents don't put a space you don't automatically qualify? >> bill: so your income has to be below the poverty level, which is i think $15,000, whatever it is this year. if you get on food stamps, how long--is there a period? do you sign up for a year, two
4:43 am
years? >> i think in most states you have to recertify every six months. now the law says if you're an able bodied adult without dependents you can only get food stamps for three months out of a three-year period. but because the economy is so bad there are waivers, and 45 states say don't worry about that because there are enough jobs right now can continue to receive food stamps pretty much indefinitely. that is one of the things republicans are targeting in their up coming legislation. they're going to get rid of these waivers. they're not the most federalist approach, but it resembles what they did with welfare in the 90s. >> bill: i'm just glad that we have our priorities straight. we're not worried about the subsidies to the oil companies and we're not worried about all

i hope you had a good weekend,, and we're glad you're joining us on monday morning. we'll talk about the big stories of the day and what is means to you. you can give us a call at 1-866-55-press. you can join us on twitter @bps, after the show i'll go down to the gym, work out, a quick change of clothes and then the white house briefings where i join journalist leslie clark in our studio this morning. hi leslie, good to see you. >> great to be here. >> we have a little break. >> yeah, we have a little break. >> bill: and you're heading to the vineyard to play golf with
5:08 am
the president. >> i'll be here instead with reports on what he's doing. >> bill: he had a good start, a good round of golf, out to dinner. >> very relaxing. >> bill: they like it up there. >> they return repeatedly except last year which was an election year. >> bill: you understand they have their priorities. >> right, right, leslie will be talking with us this half hour and then we'll be joined by jess mackintosh with emily's less, and dan henning is here all morning. we have the phones covered and we're looking good on current tv. on the video cam. leslie, you know, i don't know if you heard at the end of last week, sanjay gupta with cnn has
5:09 am
been an outspoken opponent of medical marijuana. he said, all these years i've been wrong. i didn't do my research the way i should have. i took the word of the federal drug agency that medical marijuana was a fraud, and he apologized and admitted that he was wrong. jay leno friday night had a little fun with the announceme announcement. >> cnn medical marijuana expert says he has reversed his blanket opposition to marijuana use. he has changed. he came is to his conclusion on medical marijuana after smoking a ton of marijuana. he's also come out in full support of cool ranch doritos. >> bill: because we all know you get the munchies. but i thought it was noble of
5:10 am
sanjay gupta to admit he was wrong. >> and wasn't he also obama's big for surgeon general. i wonder if he would have come to the same conclusion. >> bill: good point, but wouldn't it have been refreshing to have a surgeon general. >> it would be an interesting topic to cover. >> bill: lots to cover, we were both at president obama's news conference on friday afternoon where he made a lot of news on a whole range of different topics, we'll get to that, but first. >> this is the full court press. >> a quick check of weather headlines we'll start in sports where the tampa bay rays pull off the rare ball trick saturday against the l.a. dodgers after a fly ball was hit out to the outfield, and instead of giving it back to the pitcher like he normally would, james loney tossed it to shortstop escobar
5:11 am
who was standing over third base, and no one was paying attention at that point. they figured the play was over, and escobar held onto the ball in his glove, and then dodgers thinking the next play would start with the new pitch, and he was tagged out. he was faked. >> bill: that's very sneak. >> i that's very hard to do. the last hidden ball trick was six or seven years ago. >> keep your eye on the ball. >> absolutely. >> one of the 16 public sector employees that won the power ball in new jersey came forward and said what she's going to do with her share of the money. she's getting $9 million before taxes after splitting it among her coworkers. susan nicoles says she's not going to quit her job because she's 18 months away from retirement, loves what she does and she'll use the money to
5:12 am
rebuild her house which had seven feet of water in it from hurricane sandy. >> bill: i love when employees pool together and win the lottery. >> yes. >> bill: that's the kind of people who should win the lottery. these are public employees. they don't make that much any how. >> and they'll fix their flooded basement. >> it will be a nice new house after $9 million. and finally it looks like twitter is getting ready to go public. caught wind of a financial reporting manager which was pulled off line over twitter's website shortly after their story about it ran. there was another opening for a stock administration analyst all signs pointing to that the social media is ready to hit wall street, albeit very carefully after facebook's.
5:13 am
>> bill: twitter would be a goodbye, absolutela goodbuy. i tell you. pretty lively news conference friday afternoon. late in the day. >> yes, that was a big hit with the reporters, late in the day on a friday. >> bill: hello, could you have had it earlier in the day so we could have had our story written and take off for the weekend. >> he took a lot of questions, for him, usually he gives pretty long answers, so he doesn't have time for that many questions. >> bill: there were so many questions that came up, first nsa and larry summers, it was asked why he has come forward to defend larry summers, and i'm paraphrasing, and does that give the impression that he has the inside track as being president
5:14 am
of the fed. and the president defended him again. >> yes, absolutely. a couple of weeks ago democrats were grousing about the summers being the leading candidate and the president defend him on the hill and then again on friday. but he has not give the decision on who will be the next fed chair, but he said if someone did good work for him, he'll defend that person. >> bill: right, and he also mentioned janet yellen as a possibility. but just seems to me that even though he denies it he has gone out of his way to praise larry summers many times. he has to be seriously thinking about him. >> yes, both on the hill and then public defense of him on friday. did he play a major role in the administration in the first term during the recovery. it does seem like he's definitely one of the candidates. >> bill: he was also asked about
5:15 am
his rocky relationship with vladimir putin, but the president said not so rocky. >> he said in their conversations it's been candid, they've actually got things done, and the press tends to harp too much on the body language between world leaders. he went on that putin kind of slouched and had the attitude of a kid who didn't want to be in class, which said a lot about body language, i thought. >> bill: it did, that was pretty funny. >> yes. >> bill: instead of going to russia, i mean, there is no doubt that they did snub putin by canceling the summit, right? >> yes, putin definitely wanted him to come to moscow and sit down for a bilateral meeting into so the president is going to sweden instead. >> yes, he'll nobody russia, but he will not g go to moscow for e bilateral. he'll be in st. petersburg for
5:16 am
the summit. >> bill: the president will make an opening statement and announce major changes to the nsa program in response to criticisms that had come from the hill from republicans and democrats. >> and democrats. >> bill: about this program. i listened pretty carefully. he said a lot. i didn't hear any changes. but he started with this point. going to the president very quickly about how he understands what is going on, most americans may not yet. >> obama: it's not enough for me as president to have confidence in these programs. it's important for the american people to have confidence in them as well. >> bill: that seemed to me to be the tone that he was talking about. how did you read it? >> it definitely seemed to be a defense of the program, not necessarily--he didn't seem inclined to be making huge changes in them, but more to
5:17 am
maybe bring people in, to inform the public more about them. he offered a defense of them, and in no way did he seem to say that anything that they were doing was uncalled for or that would be scaled back. just that they would bring more transparency to it. >> bill: right, he said he had total confidence in the program, right? >> mm-hmm. >> bill: he was convinced that the program was not being abused in any way. and if you understand--really the message was if you only understood them better like i do, then you would understand why i have to do this. >> yes, you would have more confidence. one of the changes he did suggest was having an adversar adversarial role in the fisa courts. >> bill: someone in the courtroom who would argue on behalf doctoring argue against the intelligence agencies for why you have to do this. >> why do you have to get this warrant, which seems to be something that is lacking now.
5:18 am
it's just--you have the government case, and that's all. that would be a change. that would require congressional approval, and also as people have noted you don't--we wouldn't necessarily because there is not much transparency, you wouldn't know how adequate that person, the job they had done and whether or not the judge had lived to them. >> bill: because the fisa court is a secret court. >> right. >> bill: and one of the other things that the president said he wanted to work on in terms of achieving greater transparency depended very much on congress. >> i look forward to work with congress to meet those objectives. >> bill: how real is it given immigration reform, gun safety, you name the issue, the president has not gotten through this congress.
5:19 am
i'm not blaming him for that, but the rattle is this is not the most cooperative congress. how realistic is it that we'll get major whatever is needed through ns a through this congress. >> this may be different because you have critics on both sides who have come out and said i have a problem with this. it's interesting when politics hits that spectrum when you have republicans on one side and democrats on the other when something actually hits and gets them upset. so perhaps there is a chance that they could find some sort of common ground. but then you also have on the other end of the spectrum you have agreement from some members of congress of what we're doing and changes aren't necessary. >> bill: to me it's almost laugh out loud. i'm going to work with congress to achieve this. >> because of the track record so far.
5:20 am
>> bill: it has not been great. i thought most surprising the president said, you know, we're having this big conversation now about national security and privacy, but we would have had this any way. even if edward snowden had not released stuff from the nsa. >> right, right. >> bill: i don't believe that. >> yeah, he said that he had called for national conversation before snowden ever came. >> bill: yes, he said, it was my idea, not edward snowden's idea. i get the credit for this. >> yes, he dismissed the idea that snowden had any credit for engaging in the debate, but it is sort of hard to believe that it would have hit this level had the revelations no the come out. >> bill: without getting into the argument whether he's hero, traitor, whatever, i think you have to agree we're having this

5:28 am
i read it he would rather shut down the government, not rather, but that he would be willing to in order to save obamacare. did you read it that way? >> i'm not really sure on that. i'm not sure if they're still pushing stuff out and they don't want to get boxed in on makin making--setting down the terms on the debate at this point. >> bill: that's a big--that's going to be the biggest showdown when they come back from their break. >> when they come back in the fall that's going to be the whole thing. it will be over the budget. then we have the debt ceiling looming as well in the fall. >> bill: the debt ceiling, the budget, immigration reform, which is still out there. >> right. get your vacation while you can. >> bill: climate change, they're not going to do anything on that. >> and nsa. >> bill: and nsa. it will be a busy fall in washington. thank you for coming in. >> thank you so much.

5:34 am
director. >> thanks for the promotion. >> bill: good to see you. >> good to see you, bill. >> bill: you stirred things up with this panel madam president. we were just trying to launch the hillary clinton for president chain. >> we wanted to get right to it in 2013. >> bill: couldn't it be a couple of years long? >> never, never. it's bigger than one woman, one cycle. we obviously love hillary clinton. she energizes democrats like no one else in the field, male or female. we're hopeful that she decides to take this run. she's the right choice for the country, the right choice for her. she's take herring time, being thoughtful, and that's great. but we want to make sure at emily's list it's not just about live and it's not just 2016. there is a chance that her successor is a woman.
5:35 am
we want women to be part of the white house conversation forever and ever. so in 2016 we're talking about amy klovashar, and others who are ready for another title. we want to make sure that we're talking about wendy davis and some of these up and comers all over the country in the same way that we talk about the castro brothers, barack obama in 2004. it's time that women were part of the conversation, the polling, the punditry, all of it. >> bill: was that the focus, was that the purpose of the panel on friday? >> yes, we wanted to--emily's list does a lot of polling of women voters. this one polled all voters. we polled iowa voters to find out how ready they were for a woman president and not hillary specific, and it was exciting.
5:36 am
we held a town hall in iowa to continue that conversation. we invited claire mccaskill to come out, who is a huge hillary clinton supporter. and we talke talked about what d it take to get a woman to win. and we had stacey apple on, who is our emily's list endorsed candidate in iowa, who is running to become the first woman that iowa has ever sent to congress. iowa is only-- >> bill: no, really? >> yes, iowa is one of two states who has never sent a woman to federal office. the other is mississippi, which doesn't surprise you so much, but iowa? >> bill: that stuns me. there are so many great progressives there. >> and fabulous women leaders. i think 2016 is the year. >> bill: you mentioned senator
5:37 am
claire mccal mccaskill. here she is from your forum. >> really hard choice as democrats last tight between two amazing candidates, and it was difficult. i'm optimistic that she'll be the candidate and we will be able to say madam presiden president 2016. >> bill: no doubt where she is. >> oh, no, not at all. >> bill: and she said she was with barack obama last time. and i think she felt guilty about it ever since. >> as she said, it was a tough choice last time. it's not a tough choice this time. one of the things that i'm excited to see inside the town hall, keep in mind this is august 2013. we're talking about a run three years from now. it was a packed room. there was overflow, spillover. and one of the things that was awesome to see was the iowa obama '08 people and the iowa
5:38 am
'08 people all talking together and excited to be there and part of the same movement. i think we're going in a good direction for democrats next time. >> bill: donald trump. [ laughing ] >> sorry. >> bill: did he rain on your parade? >> i was expecting more out of him. he had a thin little crowd, and i didn't hear--twitter went quiet on him. which is unusual. i can't even tell what you he said. >> bill: i found it hard to believe that--that anybody other than donald trump takes him seriously. i don't know whether anybody does, but the fact that he takes himself seriously. >> someone has got to, i guess. >> bill: maybe. >> rick santorum was at the fair. he made a bit of an impression. he's trying again. i just think we have a good contrast to them. no matter who their nominee is,, no matter who our nominee is, democrats are walking into the
5:39 am
race with the much stronger side. >> bill: it will be the same clown card, with a bunch of different clowns, not all different, i same clowns but maybe different clowns as well. i try to focus on the decisions we have to make now rather than three years ahead. let's list the women who are in the news today. christine quinn in new york. all we hear about is anthony weiner, as you and i were watching on the monitors, anthony weiner at the parade making a fool of himself yet again. but christine quinn may not be getting as much media attention, but she's head of the pack. >> yes, yes, she is. i think as the fever of summer breaks, voters are going to tune in to substance. we saw a poll out this morning that voters in new york are
5:40 am
absolutely sick of the weiner-spitzer circus happening in their race. they want to talk about issues. new york city, those are smart, engaged, informed voters, and they want to talk about the real candidates. so i think that as we get closer to the run-off date september 10th, and we get past labor day christine quinn is in an excellent position. she's leading the pack. she's leading in the polls, and i think she offers such a clear choice to these guys who are clearly in it for personal ambition, self aggrandizement and see themselves in the paper. christine has been working on behalf of new york city often in total anonymity when she was working on women's health centers, affordable housing, and even going through as the first woman speaker of the city council. she has been in it for new york city all along, which is why a lot of new yorkers did not know her name. she's not flashy, she's not
5:41 am
showy. she's a hard worker with her hard in the right place. in the end that's what new yorkers will want. >> bill: let's forget the problem with weiner there are other serious candidates in the race. the rap that i hear about christine from support he is of bill diblasio or bill thompson is that she would be in effect just another fourth term for michael bloomberg because she and bloomberg were so close. she made it possible for bloomberg to get the third term so she doesn't offer anything new like diblasio and thompson would. >> i think christine quinn has spent her life in progressive politics which cannot be said of mayor bloomberg. she differentiates herself from him in a number of different ways. where her focus is, is on the middle class and working families of new york. i'm not sure that you could say
5:42 am
the same thing about who is herr predecessor. she has always put workers, women and families first. early on to focus on affordable housing and to continue that push in new york right now, that shows just a different mindset entirely. i think we also can't under estimate how important it is to elect the first woman mayor to america's largest economy. this has never happened before. if it were easy it would have already. she's ready to break the glass ceiling, and i'm excited to see her do it. >> bill: thithis is the first sp to madam president from madam mayor. >> we have fabulous women all over the country. i want to see mayors in 2013, governs in 2014, and the president in 2016. >> bill: we've talked about the
5:43 am
republican war on women. when you look at anthony weiner and bob philner mayor of san diego, particularly those two, is there a democratic war on women? >> i know the republicans are trying to reappropriate this and turn it around because what else are they going to do, but the republican war on women is not about david vitter and mark sanford or any of the other numerous bad actors in the republican party who are still in office. it's about a legislative agenda that is a party platform, policies designed to roll back the clock on women's rights and freedoms all over the country. i'm not sure what the strategy is behind them saying democratic war on women, no, it's about laws. they're out of strategy. i think this is just another--another point in the thesis that the republicans
5:44 am
don't understand why women don't like them. >> bill: there are bad actors on both sides, in both camps, and we readily admit that. >> yes. >> bill: but the ongoing anti-women's rights agenda platform is the republican par party. >> it's the legislative agenda. they want to pass laws that will affect every woman in the country. >> bill: and have already done so in state after state after state is doing it right now. let's not let them detract us from that or change the subject or whatever. we're talking women's rights and madam president with jess mcintosh here were emily's list, lots of good things to talk about. give us call at 1-866-55-press. >> follow us on twitter @bp show. this is the the bill press show.

5:52 am
in a red state, that would be fabulous. she's going to run for re-election there or run for governor. the way she has energized the country is phenomenal. i got to see her speech in d.c. last week, and her personal story is just so compelling. young single mother, put herself through school. made it to harvard law. made it to elected office. this is a woman whose mother has a sixth grade education. she's very much in line for governor seat in texas. so i think she can speak to texans in a way that the republican party simply can't right now. there is so much enthusiasm around her. i want her to make the best decision for her. she's young. she has a bright future. she can done whatever she wants whenever she wants, but she's weighing this consideration very carefully. >> bill: and new jersey. >> this is another labor day thing. i want to get past the crazy of summer and have voters actually tune in to the substance of a

nsa's domestic spying program, but they were wrong. the president did approve of the program in nsa, he said he had total confidence and was convinced that the program was not being abused in any way. his goal was not to place any limits on nsa, not to change it, but to better explain what was going on. and finally the president said that he had called for a national conversation on privacy and national security long before edward snowden, and we would be having the same conversation today even if edward snowden hadn't told us what nsa was up to. to me that's not good enough. we don't need to better understand why nsa is spying on every american. we need to stop them from doing so. all right, folks, that's it. we go into another week. have a great monday. we'll see you back here tomorrow morning.
